Get accurate mold testing in Dorval
The official Mold Busters motto is “It’s not mold until it’s tested.” Following the initial assessment, our technician generally recommends a mold test. We offer two types of testing:
- Surface sampling for mold
- Non-viable air testing for mold
Surface sampling determines whether or not a surface is contaminated with mold via tape, swab or bulk sample. For instance, if there is black spotting on your ceiling that you suspect is mold, a surface sample will confirm or deny that with a simple yes or no. This type of testing is generally straightforward and produces fast results on the spot. It does not, however, provide quantitative information about your IAQ.
A non-viable air test for mold is quite different in that our technician will capture a specimen of air and send it to an accredited microbiological laboratory to be checked out under a microscope. Lab results reveal important, more detailed information about your IAQ, including whether or not there’s mold, the species present and the concentration of mold spores in the air.
Not every cluster of black spots or musty odour is mold. That’s why it’s best to book a test before jumping to conclusions. It may just save you a lot of work, time and trouble.
My basement flooded last spring. Even though I cleaned up and fixed the leak immediately after, my basement now smells damp and musty. Could there be mold?
The reason why flooding and mold almost always go together is precisely because a flood provides the moisture mold needs to thrive. Even after the floodwater has receded and the area has been cleaned up, black mold remains a threat, usually because things haven’t been dried properly or the source of the moisture has not been repaired.
Whether you’ve had flooding due to a natural disaster, a broken pipe or leaky foundation, you need to thoroughly check every part of the affected area in order to ensure that all wet or damp materials have been completely dried. This includes not just carpets, furniture and other surfaces, but also subfloors, insulation and other materials hidden behind walls, floors and under baseboards.
Act fast to prevent further contamination and destruction by black mold growth after a flood. Contact the certified water damage restoration and mold remediation experts at Mold Busters for fast, safe and thorough service.
